Mozart's music in the movies
8. Grumpy Old Men
Mozart rubs shoulders with Right Said Fred on a soundtrack that is as lively and eccentric as the film it accompanies. Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau play the grumpy old men of the title who come to blows over their mutual love for their beautiful new neighbour, Ann Margret (Ariel Truax). The beauty of Mozart’s Haydn Quartet No. 14 in G Major encapsulates the more sensitive side of this tale of a geriatric love-triangle.
